CAKE DEBUT: Darth Vader and Son by Jeffrey Brown
What if Darth Vader actively raised his son? What if “I am your father” was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown’s delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars™ moments a fresh twist, showing that the trials and joys of parenting are universal, even in a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include light saber battling practice, using the Force to raid a cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star, and the special bonding moments shared between any father and son.Humorous and touching, Darth Vader and Son is the perfect gift for dads of the Star Wars generation.
Jeffrey Brown is a Chicago cartoonist known for his autobiographical (Clumsy), humorous (Incredible Change-Bots) and cat (Cats Are Weird) graphic novels. His newest book is Darth Vader and son.
